Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos-Recto (born Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos November 3, 1953 in Bamban, Tarlac), commonly known as Vilma Santos-Recto or Ate Vi is a Filipino actress and box office queen for almost four decades. One of the original Philippine movie queens, she rose up to become the versatile actress that has been given the fitting title of “Star for All Seasons” because of her capacity to adapt to the changing mores and values of the Filipino woman, giving a face to their plight and struggles, albeit in success both critically and box-office wise in some of Philippine cinema’s classics such as Trudis Liit (1963), Lipad, Darna, Lipad (1973), Burlesk Queen (1977), Relasyon (1982), Sister Stella L. (1984), Alyas Baby Tsina (1984), Pahiram ng Isang Umaga (1989), Dahil Mahal Kita: The Dolzura Cortez Story (1993), Anak (2000) and Dekada ’70 (2002). She is currently the governor of Batangas, Philippines (2012)(Wikipedia).

Film Achievement: Vilma Santos gave a notable performance; Entry to the 1975 MMFF

Film Reviews: Institusyon ng pamilya ang isa mga situwasyong pinoproblema ng kabataan sa Karugtong Ang Kahapon (Roma Films, Inc., 1975), iskrip ni Mike Relon Makiling, direksiyon ni Fely Crisostomo. Nariyan din ang problema ng pagiging magkaribal sa pag-ibig, pag-ibig sa pagitan ng mga nakatatanda, pagkagumon sa masamang bisyo at mga kaugnay pang usapin. Sa lahat ng ito, nagalugad ang iba’t-ibang lalim o kadalasan babaw ng pananaw, gawi at asal kaugnay ng kabataan bilang sektor. Sang-ayon ito sa limitasyon ng pagsasalarawan ng mga tagalikha ng pelikula, ng manunulat at ng direktor. Sa pelikulang ito, ginawa ni Raquel (Vilma Santos) ang tipikal na solusyon ng kabataan kapag nagkakaroon ng di-pagkakasundo sa bahay, ang magwala. At tipikal din ang reaksiyon ng ama nitong si Rafael (Eddie Garcia) sa kilos ng anak. Kung gayon, ayaw pumasok ng pelikula sa mga bagong pintong susubok tumakas sa mga de-kahong situwasyon na mag-uusisa sa pagtuturing ng lagay ng kabataang babae. Sa isang dako naman, binibigyang kahulugan ang pagiging progresibo ng modernong babae sa kanyang pagiging halaghag sa pag-uugali. Maari siyang magmura at makipagbastusan sa inaakalang kerida ng kanyang amang si Beatrice (Gloria Romero) at makipagrelasyon kay Freddie (Edgar Mortiz). Ito naman ang kabilang dako ng pagbibigay ng karakter sa katauhan ni Raquel. Sinisi nito ang ama sa pagkamatay ng inang si Norma (Celia Rodriguez) hanggang sa tuluyan itong malulong sa ipinagbabawal na gamot…" - Jojo De Vera, Sari-sarng Sineng Pinoy (READ MORE)

"...Nora Aunor's entry, NV Productions’ Batu-Bato sa Langit (directed by Luciano B. Carlos), was a hit and won as 3rd Best Picture. Vilma Santos, on the other hand, gave a notable performance in Roma Films' Karugtong ang Kahapon. That time, Nora and Vilma were in their peak, their career and the movies they made were being followed closely, compared, watched, praised, scrutinized both by fans and critics. Their storied and fierce rivalry dominated our movie industry for years. In fact, one could argue that even to this day, a Filipino movie fan is either a Noranian or a Vilmanian..." - Wikipedia (READ MORE)
